Hello fellow adventurers! My name is Tina, and I am 25 y/o from Los Angeles, planning on a solo trip to Costa Rica from approximately 5/5/18 to 5/16/18. I want to go to La Fortuna, Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, and maybe Jaco if I have time. l would like to spend my days exploring the beautiful landscapes CR has to offer and dancing the nights away at CR bars/clubs. Some top things I am looking forward to include hiking the arenal volcano, Monteverde cloud forest walk, hot springs, ziplining…

Hello! We are going to Costa Rica for fourteen nights in late July - early August. Flights have been booked and I’m hoping to nail down our itinerary. We’re a family of four with a 6 and 9 year old. Hoping for a good mix of wildlife, adventure and some beach time without too much driving. After scouring the forum and reading that Monteverde and Manuel Antonio are maybe overrated compared to the alternatives, I opted for a Caribbean side trip. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Days 1-3 - Drive directly…

Hi,
My gf and I are going to Costa Rica for 25 days in end of August and September. We were planning on having a budget of around 100usd per day for the both of us. We were thinking about bringing a tent and do camping there to save some extra money for a maximum of activities. Anybody got some advise on what to bring or not to bring and if camping is do-able there if not what would do the best option?

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know the color of the bus from SJ airport to downtown Alajuela. I know where the bus stop on the street in front of airport. I think it is Tuasa and comes every 10 minutes. Knowing the color would help if anyone knows.

WARNING WARNING WARNING

I want to share our experience in the hope it will avoid others from paying too heavy price for their wrong choice:

We booked a 10 days trip in January 2018 from Saint Germain Tours via Julia Siri De Unamuno, who came highly recommended. All went well and efficient until the last hotel we booked. We discovered that it was a different hotel from the one we agreed upon (we did not pay attention on getting the vouchers). We called Julia via whatsApp, she acknowledged the…

Hello,

I am travelling to Liberia next week landing at 6:10 a.m. I am hoping to take public transportation or a shuttle to Tamarindo upon arrival - however I am need of advice on the best way to do this. Is this something that I can easily organize upon arrival? I am hoping to keep it cheap - but I also don't want the ride to be outrageously longer than it needs to be. I will be travelling solo.

Also, I am not sure what currency is best to bring. I know that USD are widely accepted, but I…

Hi, all.

My son and I will be going to Costa Rica for the first time in June! Hooray!! :o) We only have 9 days, and I would prefer not renting a car, taking busses instead. I'm looking for advice on which parts of the country to focus on, and which airport to fly in/out of...

We are interested in seeing some wildlife (ie: monkeys, a turtle hatchery), zip lines/swinging bridges, and having some beach time. I will be booking our lodging via AirB&B, as it would be helpful if I can cook some…

What I am trying to figure…

Hello - my wife and I are travelling to CR later in April for 12 nights flying into and out of Liberia on a charter. We plan to take a shuttle to Monteverde and explore there as well as La Fortuna without a car - partly so that we can get to La Fortuna across the lake. Our plan is to leave La Fortuna and try to get over to the Nicoya Peninsula and work our way north up the coast getting back to Liberia from somewhere like Playa Coco or Tamarindo. Two questions - does anyone know a good car…

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 boys ages 11 and 15 looking to go to CR for first time. We would be there last week of july/first week in august for 10-14 days. We enjoy hiking, looking for wildlife (I really want to see a sloth!) some pool and beach time. I have done alot of research and trying to narrow down the best itinerary for us. My biggest hangups are whether to include Monteverde (especially given time of year) and what is the best beach location. I realize it will rain in both…
